Cinemascope: The Night Manager

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2016.

Plot line: Based on John le Carr√©'s novel of the same name, `The Night Manager' is a crime drama following the work of former British soldier Jonathan Pine. Hotel night porter Pine is contacted by an intelligence operative who asks for his assistance to spy on international businessman Richard Roper. The entrepreneur is believed to have forged a criminal alliance between the secret arms trade and the intelligence community, prompting the need for surveillance. Pine attempts to infiltrate Roper's inner circle by becoming a felon himself, while keeping his mission a secret from his hotel colleagues and girlfriend.

If you are a fan of spy/espionage books and movies, you have to try this one. I have yet to read the book, but this show is wonderfully produced. I realize that so many of the movies or TV shows I've been recommending lately are based on books. Not a surprise really right?

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is TV worth watching.
